We'll help you get good value for your comics. We will orchestrate every detail -- grading, appraising and listing each book for sale and marketing it to buyers worldwide. NewKadia has a proven record in maximizing your profit.
We individually grade and list every book at its current market price. Your payments are based on the true value of each comic book. Click for a sample of the reports you'll be able to view online.
Selling in bulk to someone else
When collections are sold in bulk a great deal of profit is often left on the table. Have you graded and appraised each of your books at today's market prices? Let NewKadia's 20 years of experience work for you.
You'll earn more working with us than selling all the comics in bulk. For example, one comic published in 2003 sold in 2012 for $10,000. If you sell in bulk would you recognize that book was in your collection?
Price paid *
Per book fee ***
We Pay You
* The per book fee is:
A. $3.99, or
B. $4.19 if we arrange to have the books shipped to us, or
C. $2.99 for books with a cover price 35¢ or less
if you send 250 or more with a cover price 35¢ or less.
Another example: You sent us more than 250 books with a cover price of 35¢ or less. One of them has an Overstreet Guide value of $215.   We list it for $215. Every month it remains unsold, its price drops 1/5th of 1%. In 2 months its price is $214.14. And, in this example, it's bought with a 10% coupon, reducing its price by $21.41. (Note: Coupons can't be used for comics on sale less than 61 days. In this way, customers can't use coupons for the comics most in demand which generally sell quickly at their Overstreet Guide value.) The price paid in this example is $192.75. We pay you 60% ($115.65) minus $2.99 = $112.66.
* The price paid is the amount received by NewKadia, after any discounts and coupons are subtracted.
** 'Percentage' is the percentage used to start the calculation of your share of the sale price. Once the per book fee is also deducted, your share of the price paid will be less than the percentage listed.
*** If the per book fee is more than the Sub-total, your share is $0.20 for any DC or Marvel comic, or $0.10 for a comic from any other publisher.
If your book fee is $2.99, you receive more than 20¢ only when a book sells for $6.38 or more. If your book fee is $3.99, you receive more than 20¢ only when a book sells for $8.38 or more.
Limited discounts the first 60 days a comic is for sale
For the first 60 days a book is for sale, customers can not use a discount coupon to save money on that comic.
However, if an issue is overstocked (which indicates that it's NOT a key issue) it may be discounted up to 16.5% during the first 60 days it's for sale.
This maximizes the price you get for key issues, which generally sell quickly. There is no need to discount key issues since they usually sell at their full, undiscounted Overstreet price.
Here's a tiny sample of key issues that sold at full price, during the 1st week of Sept. 2017.
Amaz. Spider-Man (1963) #3-50, 299-301
Brave & the Bold (1955 series) #28

Frequently asked questions
How long has NewKadia been in business?
Since Jan. 1, 2000.
How do I track my sales?
You Get Real Time Internet Access to Your Inventory!
Track your sales on a private page on our website. Here's an example of a seller's actual sales report. (from April 30, 2011). He sent us 19 books, which went on sale March 17, 2011.
53% sold in the first 40 days. He got $1,994.88 of the $2,713.86 received (73.5%).
Here is his report showing unsold books on April 30, 2011
All these unsold books were sold by Dec. 11, 2011 (8 1/2 months)
Why does NewKadia pay sellers more than local stores?
In 1999, I was looking to sell my own collection. I sent a list of my 800 comics to 27 comic book stores. The price guide said they were worth $10,400. The only offer I got was $325. So I started selling my comics myself, online.
Now, years later, we sell a quarter of a million comics each year, representing most every comic book character, era and publisher.
We can pay you a higher percentage and still make a fair profit because:
● As an online store, our expenses are much lower than local comic book stores.
● Because we're selling thousands more comics than a local store can, we can afford to pay you a higher percentage per book. What we give up per book, we make up in volume.
With over 1.6 million shoppers visiting our online store each year, and our proprietary pricing software, we find a buyer for every comic. With customers all over the world, we can turn your comic books into cash faster than anyone.
How big is NewKadia?
We're the biggest internet-only comic store in the world and we sell about 22,000 comic books each month.
In 2019, over 1.6 million shoppers visited our online store -- that's 133,000 shoppers each month.
It's impossible to give you an exact value until we grade each comic. That's because a comic's value is based on: (1) What issue it is and (2) its condition.
• To determine a comic's title and issue number, go to the small print (usually at the bottom of page 1) and read its official title and issue number. Then, search for the comic at NewKadia. Its Overstreet Price Guide value is listed with the issue.
A key factor is the demand for the comic. Many people would like the first Superman comic, but only a few exist. So, a copy recently sold for $2.4 million. In contast, the first issue of New Mutants is in great supply and fewer people want one. The result -- it's worth $4.
Our prices reflect "supply and demand". The longer a comic remains unbought, the more we discount it from its Overstreet Price Guide value, Why? Because Overstreet is just that ... a guide. A comic's real value is what someone is willing to pay for it. So, if a comic isn't selling at its Overstreet "Guide" price, we drop its price a tiny amount (a maximum of 1/5th of 1% per month - 2¢ on a $10 comic) until it hits the price where one of the 1.6 million people who visit NewKadia each year will buy it.
• To see the criteria we use to grade each book, click here.
But remember, the REAL VALUE of any comic is the sale price, MINUS YOUR COST (in time and advertising) to FIND that buyer. So, an Overstreet Guide value is pretty much meaningless unless you can reach potential buyers. Essentially an Overstreet "value" is a guess at its GROSS value, before deducting the cost of selling it.
Can you reach 1.6 million comic shoppers each year to display your comics?
What would your advertising cost be to find a buyer for each book?
You must subtract your actual costs and the value of your time from a book's sale price, to determine its real NET value. Or, have NewKadia sell your comics and avoid the cost and save the time. When we sell each book, NewKadia's percentage and per book fee are your costs. And you don't pay the fees unless and until we sell the book.
Which comics will sell fastest?
1. Comics that we are out of stock of will sell the fastest. Especially those a customer has put on their 'Want List' and we'll list them for you.
A. We can provide you with a list of issues that customers have put on their Want List.
B. And, you can review a list of issues of our best sellers that are out of stock by clicking here.
These will sell the fastest.
How fast will my other comics sell?
The two biggest factors in determining how fast your books will sell are:
The condition of the comic
Generally, if we have several copies of the same comic, the one in the best condition sells fastest (because collectors want the best). Copies in the worst condition also sell fast because they are much less expensive. As a result, comics without covers often sell quickly.
The popularity of the comic
We stock over 15,800 different comic book titles. For example, Amazing Spider-Man (1963 series) has 441 different issues, but for our list it is considered one title.
Click here for top 1,000 sellers. If your comics are on the list, they should sell faster than titles not at the top on the list.
Will comic buyers find my books on Google?
Yes! For example, do a Google sarch for "Amazing Spider-Man comic books for sale" -- we're usually in the top 5 results (out of 3.4 million Google results). And we're usually listed ABOVE both Amazon and eBay.
Click here to see.
Yes. We spend about $75,000 per year advertising on Google and elsewhere to attract buyers.
How accurately will you grade my comics?
Our professional grading team has graded over 2 million comic books. Approximately 1 in 9,100 books is returned with a claim that it was mis-graded. That's a customer satisfaction rate of over 99.98%
How many people sell with NewKadia?
Over 800 people have sold their comics with us. No amount is too small or too big. One seller sold 1 book only (it was X-Men #1). In contrast, the biggest seller has sold over 78,000 comics.
Are my books insured and safe?
Yes. Our fulfillment center is fully insured. Located in suburban Philadelphia, we occupy the entire third floor of this brick building. Our insurance protects our inventory from fire, theft and storm damage. We have never suffered any loss.
We selected the third floor to avoid incidental lower floor water damage. Our entire facility is protected by two burglar alarm systems. One protects the entire 88,000 square foot building; a second protects our space.
The freight elevator connects to our loading dock, where FedEx and USPS trucks pick up our customer packages and deliver your books to us.
Our processing center, warehouse and office building.
